How to make Cauliflower Fufu
Fufu is a type of food mostly known to west Africa Countries. Fufu is usually made from cassava, yam, cocoyam, and plantain. Fufu is eaten with different types of soup like egusi soup, okra soup, stew, bitter leaf soup, spinach soup, peanut soup, pepper soup, and various other types of soup. When you are on ketogenic diet you are limited to few low carb option. Those fufu items mentioned above are very high in carb, so in other to feel like you’re still enjoying fufu and soups without falling off track with the ketogenic diet (because we know how much people from those regions love their fufu), we substituted fufu ingredients with cauliflower, cabbage, egg plant, and some even use broccoli. I will be showing you how I used cauliflower below
First, cut the cauliflower and blend with 1 cup of water
Then pour the blended content in a piece of cut inside a bowl and squeeze to remove the water
Then place the cauliflower in a pot and add 1 tbsp. of husk and mix together
Next, set the pot on a stove with medium heat and continue to stir constantly to prevent burning and it will look like this
Finally, place the fufu on a flat plate, wrap with plastic wrap, and mold as seen below and enjoy with your choice of soup.
whats the subsitute for husks
Hello, some people use xanthan gum in place of husk. I personally prefer husk because of its low carb quality. I would encourage you to read up on xanthan gum before using it.
